hypekids Holiday Gift Guide: New Moms Edition
Indulge, indulge, indulge.
It’s easy to default to baby gear or kids’ toys when buying gifts for new parents, and while those things are certainly needed, few people deserve something special more than a new mom. From one-of-a-kind purses to golden eye patches, here are our picks for indulgent gifts just for new mothers.
Commodity Style Guide
Where to buy: Commodity
Price: $24 USD
Though scents make a great gift, they’re notoriously difficult to buy for other people. This Commodity gift set saves you the trouble of trying to figure out which scents the new mom in your gift likes best by giving her a little bit of everything, from the crisp, earthiness of Moss to the citrusy but creamy notes of Bergamot. And all the scents are gender-neutral, as all perfumes ought to be.
Monogrammed bag by Mansur Gavriel

Dewy Tree Prime Gold Snail Eye Patch

Price: $24.99 USD
These patches are best for those mornings after a night out, or simply after a night spent awake and caring for the new baby.
